What is HIPAA?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) standardized how private health information (PHI) and electronic private health information (ePHI) is managed. The act details how organizations should keep patient information safe and secure, inside and outside healthcare practices.

Who has to comply with HIPAA?

HIPAA’s remit extends to any organization that creates, receives, maintains, or electronically transmits individually identifiable health information.

Covered entities: Healthcare providers, health plans, and healthcare clearinghouses

Business associates: Contractors and subcontractors of covered entities who have access to the data. It can include billing companies, lawyers, accountants, and companies that store or destroy medical records.

How to comply with HIPAA requirements



Create and maintain an established backup schedule to back up original sources of essential ePHI.


Store backups securely in a location that is physically separate from the data source.


Ensure that backups and all associated data are transmitted/transported securely.


Maintain documentation that verifies the creation of backups and their secure storage.
